The term ‘refractory metal’ is used to describe a group of metal elements that have exceptionally high melting points and are resistant to wear, corrosion, and deformation.
Industrial uses of the term refractory metal most often refer to five commonly used elements:
The identifying feature of refractory metals is their resistance to heat. The five industrial refractory metals all have melting points in excess of 3632°F (2000°C).

What Is Thermal Conductivity? Thermal conductivity (denoted by k, λ, or κ) refers to a material’s ability to conduct heat at specific temperature and pressure, and it is measured in W/m•K (watts per meter-Kelvin). Highly thermally conductive materials are used to make heat sinks. Materials that transfer heat slowly act as excellent insulators. Different materials […]
1. Introduction to Alloys An alloy is a blend of 2 or more chemical elements, one of which is supposed to be metal. Different substances of controlled amount are added to a metal to form alloys with desirable properties. Examples of alloys like stainless steel, bronze, and brass are applied to various fields including construction, […]
Introduction The crust is the outermost layer of the Earth, making up 1% of the planet. It is composed of solid rocks and minerals formed, which are usually slowly formed over a long period of time. A range of elements can be found in the Earth’s crust, among which 7 of the 10 most abundant […]
